    I am glad he was finally recognized. They certainly had to jump through a lot of hoops, considering his non-combatant status.

    As Nimitz so pithily put it, "Uncommon valor was a common virtue." God bless this man. Never heard of him, will never now forget him.

    Hoping "The History Guy" covers his story at some point.
